FRESH BAIL-OUT: Ogun Assembly approves Amosun N14bn request

Ogun State House of Assembly has approved Governor Ibikinle Amosun’s request, to access the N14.16 billion Federal Government budget support  facility programme, for the payment of workers and pensioners  entitlements, as well as  severance of past political office holders in the state.

The house approved the loan request, after extensive debate on the importance of the facility to the State Government, in meeting its financial obligation on a monthly basis.

The House Majority Leader, Adeyinka Mafe opening the debate on the loan request, during the resumed plenary of the  assembly in Abeokuta said,  the single interest rate offered by the presidency, was most  suitable for the economy of the state,  as  it would release more funds for capital projects in the budget.

He said the loan would be released in tranches, with the N1.4billion in first month of disbursement and N1.3billion in subsequent months.

The House Minority Leader, Olawale Alausa, however called for the review of the state debt profile, and monthly internally generated revenue, to determine the capability of the state government to pay back the loan facility, in order not to put the people of the state in financial bondage.
